This book gives a nod to nuclear, chem, bio weapons fallout survival. Even touches on some info for what to do in case of a crash, stranded at sea,
and natural disasters. I have this book in my home survival libarary, but it isnt the one I go to when Im looking for back up knowledge on outdoor
survival. The actual practical survival skills outlined in the SAS John "Lofty" book are mostly redundant, you can find the exact same ideas, and
even pics of ideas, in MANY other survival books.
Not that it's not good for your novice survivalist, but I find its lacking in any innovation by not exploring beyond the 'normal' figure four and
deadfall traps. Or a ton of other tecniques that are repeated in most survival handbooks.
If your looking for a good supplement for your copy of SAS, I would suggest the US ARMY Survival Handbook by the Department of the Army, and the New
and Revised Practical Outdoor Survival-A Modern Approach to Staying Alive in the Wilderness by Len McDougall.
